My Tree Nation Petition Passes It's Goal!

I am SO elated because my petition at Tree Nation (you can get to it by clicking on the Tree Nation icon above) has surpassed the 1000 mark and is heading for the next thousand, and MORE TREES. More beautiful Baobab trees whose massive trunks can hold 120,000 liters of beautiful live giving water to provide the people of Niger with food, sustinence, and life. Trees to provide Co2 absorption, healthy landscapes, shade, spiritual growth, and physical sustinence. Trees to be the lungs of a planet in desperate need of the care that trees provide to her.

Trees are the balm on the wounds of our planet. It's life force, its love. To me trees promote well being, spiritual wholeness, and an inner peace we get from no other resource on our planet save water. They are a part of the web of life we simply cannot live without.

I am so filled up to be a part of such a wonderful effort to save our planet and to be doing something to mitigate the effects of deforestation, drought, and the poverty that slowly take away hope. Planting these trees gives us all a renewed hope in the life of our planet, and a future where our children and their children will be able to look upon the beauty that once was and say to us, "good job."

And we need to now take it further. We need another 1000 signatures to get more trees planted for Mother Earth and for us. We need to pledge that we are willing to change our lives in ways that will benefit our world and ourselves. We need to be the change we wish to see in the world, and with the spectre of climate change ever present in more lives everyday this petition is all the more crucial for the future sustainabiity of our beautiful planet.

So let's do it! And thank you from the bottom of my heart.
